Ken Block has raised enough money to keep his billboard campaign going.

It still seems like a waste of resources, to me.  Here’s his tweet from May, when he announced his continuing fundraising:

KenBlockRI: We are now raising money for next month's billboards. Please help us keep the pressure on RI government to produce the accountability we need.

 

There’s no pressure, here. Once people have that initial burst of “right on” feeling, such billboards become part of the background.  When I looked into billboards years ago, they were about $10,000 per month.  Two months of that would fund a sizable grant for investigative work or other human activity that would genuinely keep the pressure on, whether by unearthing new information or engaging in activism.
